“Down by the Water” by PJ Harvey (1995)

2 05 2009

Polly Jean Harvey makes great music and pushes a lot of boundaries and buttons, which you know I think is terrific. An artist of her talent could easily produce formulaic music and make a mint, but Ms. Harvey plays from her heart and soul.

Fortunately she has a lot of admirers and fans, allowing her to continue sharing her music with us.

This track just grinds and sways behind the assured but menacing lyrics. What’s she singing about? I’ll leave that for you to decide.
